The goal of the Cold Spring Harbor Library is to educate, entertain, and enhance the lives of everyone in the community. We strive to create an inviting atmosphere for all ages, offer a wide variety of programs, and maintain a quality collection of books, eBooks, DVDs and other popular resources.
The proposed budget for the 2016-2017 fiscal year has a zero percent increase, which complies with the New York State tax cap. Although total expenditures will remain the same as last year, we will be increasing the funding of key service areas, including our Children’s Easy Reader, Fiction, and Nonfiction book collections, and our Children’s, Teen, and Adult Programs.
Our annual Budget Vote and Trustee Election will be held at the Library on Tuesday, April 5. Please come to the Library to cast your vote, and participate in some of the special programs being offered that day. During the evening, enjoy a performance by some of our very talented elementary school musicians, and attend a reception for our equally talented young artists, whose work will be on exhibit.
I look forward to seeing you at the Library!
Dr. Roger Podell
